what happened on this. >> jon: cbs news releases more about what he thought about the benghazi attack but is it proof that cbs was helping the white house hide the truth. now the election come and gone, what do americans and late night comics have to look forward to. >> how do you repay me? four more years. >> jon: on the panel this week, judy miller, cal thomas, jim pinkerton and columnist kirsten powers. i'm jon scott. fox too news watch is on right now. >>> i wish all of them. particularly first lady and their daughters. this is time of great challenges for america. [ applause ] >> i pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation. [ applause ] >> tonight in this election you, the american people reminded us while our world has -- our road has been hard and journey been long we have picked ourselves up. we have fought our way back. we know in our hearts that for the united states of america the best is yet to come. >> jon: that the way election night ended. so considering it all, jim, after more than a year long campaign, it's over? did it fit the media narrative?
a story and cbs news, also. so other news networks and organizations are starting to dig in. so we might see a change on this, senator. >> i hope so. i menged, how can they explain that a counter-terrorism security group, especially designed to convene and coordinate actions of government, in cases of terrorist attack, they toll them to stand down. how do we know that? people who are part of that organization are mad as hell because they weren't convened. and they didn't act. while american lives were in danger. >> greta: well, if this story persist, it is because we are not getting answers and the administration hasn't. i would be glad to put this story to rest so we can all move o. but, senator, thank you, sir. dick morris has a prediction about the outcome of the election. what is it? good evening. erch says it's neck and neck, but your prediction is different? >> it is not neck and neck. it's a few laps, i think... romney is going to win by 5 to 10 points in the popular vote. i think he is going to win the electoral vote by something like 310-220. i think he will carry -- this is wan
, for three days and it's going to be on cbs news, abc news, it's going to be bomb, -- boom, boom, boom. economy getting better, economy getting better. romney camp has got to figure out a way to blunt that somehow. >> i think paul ryan and mitt romney have done a very good job talking about what a real recovery looks like. what a recovery in the early 1980s began to look like when you are creating hundreds of thousands of jobs. not 150,000 jobs. or 100,000 jobs. i think people know what a recovery feels like around their own kitchen tables. that's why that ad that ran with the family just sitting in silence at dinner was so powerful during this election cycle because it was the anxiety that so many people feel, bill, regardless of politics. they know how their own family feels. >> bill: that's why governor romney is running strong in so many places. it's all about the economy. you don't disagree with me that libya is going to matter? no matter what comes out? >> well, i think it its actually played out already as far as the way the people think. i don't think we will learn anything els
all together. >> so you, lou dobbs, take the exact opposite stance that cbs news radio takes? exactly the opposite? >> imagine that. >> but look, come on now, cbs radio goes out to thousands of radio stations, people like me listen to it in their car or when you get up, this and that. you respect -- are a respected economic reporter. you say i don't think it's logical. >> you know they have to spin it the president's way. >> what it portrays a lack of understanding what is happening here and the numbers tell the story. this is a workforce in this country of over 135 million people. we see a net change within that of 171,000 people in one month. it takes about 150,000 of them to just keep up with population growth and suddenly there's economists on the air of cbs that say this is a broad-based change in direction. it is not. it's an improve men, a slight improvement if anything at all, and that's the fact of the matter. >> okay. so you say, and i'm sure with all due respect. >> surely. i like that respect word. >> that the economists, they chose, cbs chose, a guy named hoffman, that he
in its assessment of the news. but i knew when the economic data came out today cbs would report it this way. >> the labor department's october employment report, the last big reading on the economy before election day shows stronger than expected job gains. but more people were look for work last month and that pushed unemployment a te higher to 7 .9%. still a pickup of 171,000 jobs is significant. economist stewart hoffman calls it the real deal. >> a good gain in jobs, a widespread gains, this isn't a fluke, it's a genuine improvement in the jobs market. >> in a moment lou dobbs will tell us if he agrees with that point of view. here is what is really happening. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%. however, there were more jobs available in october. in fact, the workforce rose by 578,000 americans. that's good. the reason unemployment went up is because more americans are now looking for jobs because more jobs are becoming available. the bad news is that unemployment among african americans jumped almost a full percentage point from 13.4% to 14.3%. that is a disaster. also, the rea
it was terrorism. late last night, cbs news, which had an interview with the president on september 12, releases quietly on its website a critical outtake from their interview with president obama. asked him whether this was terrorism, and i no one should listen to what the president said. >> mr. president, this morning he went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the would-be attack. he believed this was a terrorist attack iraq. >> it's too early to know exactly how this came about. what group was involved. but obviously, it was an attack on americans. and we are going to be working with the government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice one way or the other. megyn: so he says it's too early to know, but he maintained that he was referring to it as terror all along. cbs news decided that 60 minutes edifice out of the piece and then does not post until 48 hours before the election? >> total cover-up. mainstream media has been covering up the story. it is really bordering on the criminal act your. megyn: do you think the story lives on? president
's a landslide. you talk about the gallup number, today the cbs/"new york times" numbers came out. three swing states, obama leads by one. in ohio, he leads by five. in virginia, he leads by two. this momentum by romney is all concocted and the press fell for it. dais i didn't call on you but you -- >> dana: i didn't call on you but you went anyway so i'll take the last word. one poll that came out yesterday that was interest, the national public radio teamed up resurgent republic to talk about the independent voters. if we go back eight months ago on the program to say what will matter in the election, independent voters. democrats vote for democrats. republicans vote for republicans. we have a group. gallop said 40% of the people identify independents now. there is an 8-point swing for independents in favor of romney. it happened right after the first debate if denver. 51-39%. they will have more detail out of the npr public tomorrow. it can tell you this. guess what? tomorrow in his column, karl rove in the "wall street journal" column, he will make prediction on the election turn-out. >> b
or contain it until the election. something changed when cbs news, to be fair, has been following this story very aggressively but it got special prominence when the main stream media started picking up on the reports and started digging into this in or is it too little too late? >>guest: great question. the answer is, too little too late. if the democrats win, i promise it will be so hard to continue an investigation if romney wins, as many of us hope he does, to protect this nation, i assure you we will get to the bottom of it. but we have men dead, we have soldiers who exposed themselves to harm's way who only did that because they believed they had support. i can tell you quickly, i know from very very personal experience the only thing you have when you go into a very deadly situation is the hope and prayers and knowledge that your guys will be there to back you up. if they don't show up like we understand one of seals that was killed thought when he painted a building where the fire was coming from, and nobody showed up to help. there was nothing, nothing, nothing more fearful to a sol
and grand kids deserve it or something. cbs news asked him if he would confer with mitt romney over some issues. the president said he might if he could find the time. now, if i'm the governor, i'm not changing any plans waiting for that call. in short, this was a very relaxed press conference because happy days are are indeed here again. >> christie parson. hey. >> thank you, mr. president. and congratulations, by the way. >> thanks. christie there in -- when i was running for state senate. >> that's right, i was. >> christie and i go back a ways. >> i have never seen you lose. >> bill: talking points pretty much has seen it all on the journalism front as i told you last night. the press in america sadly is in terrible shape. i don't understand why the president doesn't do these press srcheses all the time. he completely controls the room. only henry had him stammering. you know what i really think? i think barack obama doesn't respect the national press corps because he knows they love him. he uses them. but he doesn't think much of him. i could be wrong. summing up, i learned nothing
. tonight we are getting closer to find out the answer to that now important question. according to cbs news it appears that the office of director of national intelligence headed by james clapper is preparing to take the fall to remove all references to al-qaeda and terrorism from that document. these were the talking points used by susan rice appearances which she blamed the incident on a youtube video. this revelation directly contradicts what clapper's and colleagues and intel community told congress last week. take a look at this. >> that the hearing we had on thursday and friday, we had every leader of the intelligence community there including folks from the state department, the f.b.i., everybody there was asked do you know who made these changes. nobody knew. the only entity that reviewed it was that was not there is the white house. >> so clapper was in the room and refused to take responsibility just last week. now, all of a sudden, that pressure is mounting on the white house and he steps forward to admit culpability. john mccain released a statement quote, this latest episode is
to deploy but were upon called upon by the u.s. government. one official told cbs news tonight, the csg is the one group that is supposed to know what resources every agency has. now, they know of multiple options and had the ability to coordinate counter-terrorism assets across all the agencies. they were not allowed to do their job. they were not called upon. meanwhile, the house oversight committee sent a letter to the secretary of state, hillary clinton, asking about documents that indicate that people affiliated with the libyan government may have been involved in the attack. joiningous this breaking news, former new york city mayor, rudy guiliani. there is a likelihood that power is not going to be back on in new york until... some estimates, november 11 or beyond. there is no heat. there is no gas. people are dumpster diving for food. it was all over the drudge report. the president goes for a photo-op. he's gone. there is no help coming in here at all. it is four days into this. i mean, i really believe this is now -- this is a disaster out there. >> it is a disaster. particular
't know what cronkite was. >> if you were in iowa you didn't know. but if you were working at cbs news you damn well knew because i worked there. >> you may have known what he was off camera but you didn't know what he was on camera. >> bill: but decisions were made about personnel, story coverage, and point of view by cronkite, brokaw, and rather. who were committed left wingers. >> and koppel. you might as well add into the mix. >> bill: i think you were just in a daze all the time. i don't think you really interfered that much. i was at abcened a i heard the scuttlebutt but you. you about you. jennings didn't like all that ideology. he that's why i didn't bring his name up. >> i would rather you have criticized me because your compliments are more damaging than. >> bill: i have got to tell the truth. >> bill, what is it that you think that i have said about the network or written about the network? >> bill: you think that we have corrupted the sanctity of fair news coverage. >> i think -- >> -- that's what i think. >> i think that i ideological coverage of the news be it the right or th
had a conversation with john dickerson of cbs news. he said to you before the last presidential debate he thought maybe the american people were quietly cooking something up, something we don't know about. you wrote, i think they are. and i think it's this. a romney win. explain that. >> well, i just got a feeling and i have had it for a little while that something is going on out there. maybe the best way to explain it to myself in a way in the last 24 hours has been all the data i get, all the anecdotes and one distinguished thing about this campaign and unusual thing is we have all been so overwhelmed by data, battleground polls. national polls, local weighted polls. in a way my mind has gone back to let's see what the humans are saying. all i get is a sense that the republican base, its many constituent parts. maybe has in the past 10 days or few weeks started to come together again and they are going to come out. i also see, this is from polls, the number of independents who appear to be breaking for romney. you talk to democrats who are feeling sympathetic, i'm just thinking some
and romney questioned him and candy crowley jumped in and said you are wrong. cbs news he was wrong. megyn: good job as always, thanks so much. coming up. pot is legal ... we'll tell you where. i've been a superintendent for 30 some years at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter. megyn: an outbreak of voter fraud claims. what were the 11th hour issues that sprang up last night and where? plus what do it all mean for elections going forward. eric? >> reporter: we know what's expected on election day. the broken machines, scanners that don't scan and long line. what is not expected is you show up and the poll work looks aught and says you already voted. voters say when they showed up to vote they were told they had absentee ballots voted in their names. he said the information was all correct including the driver's license number but the signature
romney when it comes to independent voters by 12 points and a cbs "new york times" poll that reflects the same numbers. a deficit for the president when it comes to independent voters. how does this work? michael barone is the senior political analyst and fox news contributor. i guess the theory is the republicans and democrats will be split and the independents will make the difference? and romney is winning with them? >> that's the theory. 2008 democratic party identifier outnumbered republicans 32 points. 2010 party identification was even. that's from exit poll data. if the parties are even in strength as when they are in 2004 and the 2010 off-year election then the independents are going to swing it because party identifier these days are strong partisans. you are getting 90-plus percentage of democrats for obama and 90% republicans voting for romney. weir we'll see something other than a 1% race in the presidential contest. megyn: if that's true why don't we see bigger numbers for mitt romney in states like ohio and iowa and these other critical states that may be required for h
in benghazi was a terrorist attack. that is from the dni to cbs news. so, she is going to have a difficult confirmation if, in fact, she is named. but where do the hearings go from here? where when does hillary clinton step up and shed light on what happened? >> that's an excellent question. and when you look ahead to the next two weeks, what we anticipate is that the secretary of state will testify most likely in an open hearing within about the next 10 days this goes to the other issue that's unresolved department and the death of ambassador stevens and those other three americans. fox was first to report on a classified cable that was done in august less than a month before the attack which is really the smoking gun warning there was an emergency meeting and what they relayed to headquarters and hillary clinton's office in washington is that that consulate could not withstand a coordinated attack and that these islamist groups were everywhere and that they needed more help. this group in effect predicts the very way they are going to die less than a month later there was no additional s

to congress at least on abc-cbs and nbc morning and evening news programs. >> on the spending, they say spending is never a problem. it is the darn republicans insisting on cooling it. >> that's right. it will be interesting to see whether they talk -- i think they will talk a lot more about the need to raise taxes than to cut spending. we found that congress was blamed 16 times more than president obama. the networks also relied on liberals like bill clinton and timothy gite neither and now senator elizabeth warren who actually called the gop obstructionist in one story. >> you know what is interesting having uncovered more than my share of threatened government shutdowns and debt ceiling and qawg mires and the like. republicans are castrated for being bough lig rent -- belligerent when it comes to sticking to their principals and stop the spending spree. not so democrats if they don't. so i am just saying what is good for the goose could mean going after the began deer. gander, so why not? >> are you right president you are absolutely -- you are right. you are absolutely right. and it
ohio. it runs just exactly counter to the quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll. >> bill: okay, now, when these votes are excuse me, when these votes are cast in states before election day, they are immediately cointed, right? are they immediately counted? >> no. they are generally put aside. what they do is they catalog who has cast the early ballot. >> so they know who is voting. now, on a -- just on a toe tattle basis in ohio. are more -- have more republicans voted than democrats in ohio or is it just a percentage that's higher? >> no, no. it's just -- there are more democrats who voted than republicans. but four years ago the democrats had a huge massive in the early vote. you know as i showed in those numbers, there are a lot more republicans voting than voted four years ago and a lot fewer democrats. so there is a great -- there is parody between the two parties. >> bill: why do you think if the polls say ohio is so close that more democrats voted ahead of time than republicans? >> well, traditionally democrats do a better job of turning out certain elements of their coalitio

. the president's senior strategist david axlerod and lindsey graham discussed the plan on cbs's "face the nation." >> it's obvious we can't resolve the challenge simply by cutting the budget. we have cut by $1.1 trillion. but you need new revenues. every objective person who looked at this agrees on that. the question is where is that revenue going to come from? >> no republican will vote for higher tax rates. we'll insist our democratic friend reform entitlements, something we have never done and that's where the big money is at. shannon: doug schoen and grover more gift. thank you, gentlemen. you have taken the heat because you are accused of strong arming republicans into signing a pledge that they won't raise taxes and you are to blame for the gridlock and it will continue. how do you respond? >> the pledge is taken by candidates for office to their constituents and the american people it, a pledge they take to their constituents and they get elected based on that. a majority of the congressmen and house of representatives made a written commitment they will vote against tax increases and we
talking points. when you look at what she said cbs, face the nation, also on "meet the press," not only was that piece omitted, also she said that al-qaida was decimated. martha: this is a new report that claims that benghazi was not the only al-qaida-linked terror attack on september 11th. were some of those other attacks al-qaida inspired or linked. that is a big tor story we are pursuing. we are joined by peter king. chairman of the homeland community. good to see you. >> good to be with you. martha: if susan rice is indeed considered for secretary of state we need to know where she stands on the issue of al-qaida and whether or not she believes that al-qaida is still a threat, is a growing threat. she says they were decimated. perhaps that is the most important thing that needs to come out of these discussions, what does she really believe about al-qaida in this region? >> right, martha, benghazi we're talking about the past, it's very important but it is the past. despite what susan rice this is about the status of al-qaida that will determine the policy over the next several years

the attack on every major news network. but here is what's more troubling. it wasn't just susan rice who did that. if you recall, the president went not only on letterman, univision, the day after the cbs interview and 14 days later before the united nations, he did not call it a terrorist attack, nor did he reference it as connected to al-qaeda or an al-qaeda affiliated group. in fact, the only reference he made to al-qaeda in that u.n. speech to the world was that al-qaeda had been weakened and osama bin laden was dead. so i think this raises additional questions. it goes beyond ambassador rice. first of all, why were the talking points changed? it doesn't make any sense to me that we were trying to dupe al-qaeda that. doesn't pass the laugh test. buff also why was the president out 14 days later and still fail to go call it a terrorist attack to the world? >> steve: absolutely. because we don't know a lot of what is told by the intelligence community to the president of the united states, but we understand that 72 hours after the attack the presidential daily briefing, which tells the pre
